Covalent Bond
back
A type of bond formed by the sharing of electrons between two atoms. Usually these atoms have a small difference in electronegativity.
front
Molecule
back
A group of different atoms that held together by covalent bonds.
front
Diatomic Molecule
back
A molecule that is composed of only two atoms.
front
Molecular Compound
back
A compound that is composed only of groups of covalently-bonded atoms.
front
Molecular Formula
back
A formula giving the number of atoms of each of the elements present in one molecule of a specific molecular compound.
front
Single Bond
back
A chemical bond in which one pair of electrons is shared between two atoms.
front
Double Bond
back
A chemical bond in which two pairs of electrons are shared between two atoms.
front
Triple Bond
back
A chemical bond in which three pairs of electrons are shared between two atoms.
front
Structural Formula
back
A formula that shows the arrangement of atoms in the molecule of a compound.
front
Lone Pair
back
A pair of electrons around an atom in a molecule that is not shared in a covalent bond.
front
Coordinate Covalent Bond
back
A covalent bond that forms between two atoms in which just one atom contributes all of the electrons necessary to form the bond.
front
Polyatomic Ion
back
A molecule (consisting of multiple atoms) that holds a positive or negative charge.
front
Bond Dissociation Energy
back
The amount of energy required to break one mole of the bonds between two atoms in the gaseous state.
front
Resonance Structure
back
When multiple lewis dot structures can be drawn for a molecule, this structure is used to show a hybridization of them all.
front
Free Radical
back
A single electron around an atom in a molecule that is not shared in a covalent bond.
